Happy Easter Peeps!

Happy Easter to my Peeps! Yesterday was a nice if not chilly day in Manhattan. I enjoyed my day with Barbara and Anna. There was a rather large order that came in and we unpacked it an put it out. There were some goodies in there for me too! I finally got my Gansai Tambi Watercolors! Can’t wait to give them a try! I also got a few more Hero sets! When the day was finished I headed to the Subway and managed to get the 7:12 train home! Dad got me from the station and I had dinner with my parents when we got back to the house. When I got back to my house I crafted for a bit and watched a little TV. Today I plan on getting a lot more crafting done! I took this picture when I ran to the bank yesterday, love all of the bikes in front of that pretty tree!

I made a quick card when I got home last night and that’s what I have to share with you. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Scotch Black Glitter Washi Tape down the left side. On top of that is a strip of Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka in the Meadow. 12×12 Paper. My tag is a piece of Marina Mist that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Dies. Across the bottom is a piece of Garden Green that I cut with the Tag Die and then across the top I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Lawn Cuts. My clouds are cut out from Solar White 80lb with the clouds from the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies Lawn Cuts. I adhered the grass and the clouds to the tag and trimmed off the sides of the clouds. My Peep is from the Simon Says Stamp My Kind of Peep Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Duckling Ink with the outline stamped in Onyx Black. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out the Peep and adhered it to the tag. A piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is tied in a knot through the top of the tag and then the tag is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. My sentiment is from the same set and is heat embossed on Garden Green. I used the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners Lawn Cuts to cut it out running it through twice to make it a little shorter. Some Foam Tape adheres it to the tag and the card is done! I figured that I wanted to get one more use out of that Peeps set! I hope that you like my quick card for today and that you all have a very Happy Easter! Thanks for visiting me today! 🙂

  1. Super fun card, Justin! The peep tag is adorable and I love the grass die. I thought I had one in my stash, but I don’t so I ended up having to “cut” grass using snips for my recent Peeps card that I have yet to post.

    You’ll love your Gansai watercolors – I got mine a couple of weeks ago and just recently swatched them. Gorgeous! Why did I wait so long to swatch them and use them? Fear of the unknown, I guess. 🙂

    Happy Easter!

    1. Thanks very much Christy! I love that Grassy Border Die, makes it much easier that the fringe scissors!
      I am looking forward to playing with my watercolors! I too will probably wait! LOL! Happy Easter to you too! 🙂

  2. Happy Easter, Justin! I love those peeps and they are are going on my must-get list. You are my kind of peep too! We have had weather in the 70’s, but the forecast is in the 20’s overnight next weekend! Can’t wait to get to April and the lamb weather. Off to physical therapy in the morning, but it’s not a great fix. More spine look see on Wed. Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs, Nancy B
